Project Isizwe, the large-scale Free WiFi network, has announced Dudu Mkhwanazi as its new CEO.

The position was previously held by Zahir Khan and before him, Alan Knott-Craig Jnr.

Mkhwanazi is deeply committed to enabling social justice and empowering South Africans through free access to the Internet, the company says in a statement.

Project Isizwe hopes Mkhwanazi's appointment to the executive role will help the initiative ensure its mandate as the advocate for free WiFi as a human right.

"Project Isizwe is lobbying for ubiquitous, government subsidised internet access within a walking distance of every South African", says Mkhwanazi.

"Internet access is a tool to empower those in low socioeconomic ranks. When the government heeds the call to make Internet access a basic human right akin to water and electricity in South Africa, it will be more than a progressive pioneering policy, it will be a selfless act to bridge digital, economic and social divides."

Mkhwanazi holds a Masters Degree public policy analysis from Universit'e Montpellier in France, and has a demonstrated history of successfully managing complex projects at scale.
